Bing Brings Some Real-Time Data Into Search Result From Twitter

Lots of discussion has been happened on Real-Time Search and Result. There are search engines like twitter, scoopler, which provides realtime data to your query. TechCrunch post shows the real time search result for few search engines. Bing, a new search engine from Microsoft, is also in the race to provide real time search result. Today Bing unveiled an initial foray into integrating more real time data into search results, starting with some of the more prominent and prolific Twitterers from a variety of spheres.

This includes Tweets from folks from Bing’s own search technology and business sphere like Danny Sullivan or Kara Swisher as well as those from spheres of more general consumer appeal like Al Gore or Ryan Seacrest.

Starting later today, when you search for these folks names in association with Twitter, you’ll see their latest Tweets come up in real time on Bing’s search results. For example, if you type “Kara Swisher Twitter” or “Kara Swisher Tweets” or even “@karaswisher” as your search query, you’ll see something like the below. (Note this feature will be rolling out gradually over the course of the next few hours so you may not see it right away.)

The answer will include that person’s latest Tweets, along with an easy link to “See more tweets” from that individual.

Bing is not indexing all of Twitter at this time. It index just a small set of prominent and prolific Twitterers and their tweets. It has picked a few thousand people to start, based primarily on their follower count and volume of tweets.
